Phenomena such as climate change, the rise of renewable technology, rapid urbanisation and the liberalisation of electricity markets are altering the energy landscape faster than ever before. Managing these complex changes will require a deep knowledge of the dynamic economic forces that are reshaping the sector.
This programme equips energy managers with the vital skills and knowledge required to understand and influence those forces effectively. Built around real-world electricity sector case studies and deploying cutting-edge virtual learning methods, the programmer empowers participants with a range of powerful microeconomic analytical tools to enact positive change across the energy sector.
Designed and delivered by EIT InnoEnergy, one of Europe’s leading renewable energy authorities, and Grenoble Ecole de Management, a triple-accredited French business school with a unique focus on the management of technology and innovation, Energy Economics for Managers will help participants to recognise and leverage the most important tools for energy economics. These skills will be vital to develop and analyse successful business strategies in the energy sector including:
Supply and demand analysis in energy markets:
This programme is specifically designed for energy professionals and managers who want to understand the practical economics of energy transition. During the programme, participants will learn the main concepts and tools used by energy economists to analyse energy markets and they will start to understand the fundamental forces that are operating within the energy sectors.
For energy professionals, this is a chance to develop the economic tools to design and manage effective energy strategies. For managers, it is a great opportunity to learn about these tools and to start the journey towards thought leadership by promoting the rigorous analysis required to make a successful energy transition.
